Ken Davis is joined by writer/critic and journalist Lee Bey and The Defender author Ethan Michaeli to discuss the impact a Ben Carson stewardship over HUD will have in Chicago. They talk about their fears stemming from Carson’s stated belief that poverty is “more of a choice than anything else”, and that poverty can be overcome by simply working harder. They discuss the CHA’s “Plan for Transformation” and the incoming Trump Administration’s preference for the privatization of public services such as housing, schools and roads. This program was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (CAN TV).
